Phoenix was always temporary. Now that I have come to the conclusion that what my job is asking of me is something that I cannot maintain and still be healthy in mind and body, and since I'll be moving anyway -- it's time.
There are many people and things that I will miss, and no mistake. Not the least of these is my best friend. I have already sent him an e-mail and also discussed in person. I will miss him so, so badly, but I have known for some years now that California is home. The land tells me so.
I have told my best friend. I cried on marta's virtual shoulder. I have told our old college buddy Dawn. I have told my aunts, my mom, and my sister. I have told those in IRC who were there when I told them. I am plotting with lacey. Now I am telling you.
